Start-up is bringing innovative approach to online learning
Alumnus Sami Hasaballa is the Innovation Lead at Roctar, an e-learning platform looking to revolutionise online learning and teaching.
The 2020 International Business graduate is leading the start-up company, which has a strong focus on science.
Roctar offers an online platform with thousands of STEM experiments and gamified interfaces, including progression systems.
“We aim to bring science back to experimentation rather than focused on book-learning”.
A range of science kits – with themes including electricity, microscopy, and fossils – reinforce the online learning and allow young people to conduct hands-on experiments at home. Roctar also offers guided videos, and the online platform encourages participation through points-based challenges.
